Amigos de las Americas Chicago North Chapterhttp://amigos-chicagonorth.org
A world where each young person becomes a life-long catalyst for social change. AMIGOS is a leader in international youth development, creating a world in which young people realize their full potential as leaders and global citizens. We provide extraordinary opportunities for youth to design and lead projects in collaboration with US and Latin American peers and partner organizations across the Americas. Our strong partner network, built over 50 years, enables authentic engagements in communities across the region. The AMIGOS Chicago North Chapter recruits, trains, and supports AMIGOS participants and their families from the suburbs of Chicago. Our chapter accepts participants August through November of the fall prior to each summer experience. During the months of December through June, Chicago North Chapter participants will take part in local training and fundraising events as they prepare for their AMIGOS experience.
